Summary: Works well, only problem is zone 2 has limited inputs. We wanted to have the same CDs playing in livingroom and kitchen. We have a optical audio cable into this receiver, but you can't output that to zone 2.
Summary: I have been using a Yamaha receiver for years. I just purchased a Sony W850 series LED TV and wanted to upgrade to a new receiver. I researched many and again settled on the Yamaha for the best in class audio. No disappointment here. The product is solid in every aspect.
Summary: I bought this unit primarily because it claimed Airplay support. After three months of trying, I'm giving up. The feature simply does not work and good luck getting any support out of Yamaha. Their support is as imaginary as the Airplay feature. All other network functions work fine.
Summary: My third Yamaha receiver and it doesn't disappoint. I have it wired to my network and can control it from anywhere with my phone or my computer. It sounds as good as the receiver it replaced (RX-V1500), but I have to turn it up a little more because I went from 125W/ch to 90W/ch.
Summary: They don't say. But the HDMI is 1.4a and the Current standard is HDMI 2.0, which was created to handle the features in 4K displays. So if you are buying this for 4K you are starting with problems that cannot be corrected. The advertised AirPlay really only works adequately with WiFi.
Summary: I took a calculated risk in buying this online without ever testing one in person. Thats the perk of shopping online rather than driving around to 20 electronics stores looking for what you want. I currently own multiple Yamaha products and they are all very well made.
Pros: This receiver, so far, has been outstanding. The sound drivers are brilliant. The sound presets are excellent and plentiful. The bass is balanced and pure but not over-powering at low levels. Plenty of settings to make it sound perfect. I haven't hooked up the 7 speakers yet but the 5.1 is enrapt...
Summary: My speakers have come to life. I had this amp playing in 1 hour. Using Paradigm 11's and like surrounds. I have to keep checking to see if my center is playing on 2 channel mode due to the spectacular seperation on my mains. Easy everything with this amp. Exceptional value for the money.
Summary: I have another Yamaha stereo in the house RX-1010 but I didn't want to spend another $900 on a receiver so I did some research and ended up with this one. I only have 5.1 surround connected to it but this receiver has everything I need including AirPlay.
